Games Like Animal Jam


Animal Jam is a free online kids game from National Geographic.  The game features an open-world type of map where children are free to explore the world of Jamaa.  Animal Jammers can navigate around the different areas, playing games and learning about different animals.  Players can also communicate with their friends using a filtered, in-game chat system.

Since Animal Jam is such an immersive online game for kids, we often get asked “What are some games like Animal Jam?”  There are some other online kids games similar to Animal Jam.  Most of these games are free to try but also have membership available for purchase, just like Animal Jam.  Some of them have animals as the main characters while other games use people and other creatures.


Club Penguin – Club Penguin is similar to Animal Jam in a lot of ways.  You can sign up for free and customize your own penguin avatar to play with.  Players can explore a virtual world and play a wide range of games and activities, just like Animal Jam.  Club Penguin also allows players to interact with eachother through a chat system which is built around safety.

Just like in the Animal Jam game, the Club Penguin world is divided up into areas with different themes.  Players are each given their own igloo to decorate as a home, similar to the dens in Animal Jam.  Items can be purchased with coins.  Coins can be earned by playing games or by using cheat codes.  Club Penguin has a massive online community with millions of other players to interact with.  If you like Animal Jam, give Club Penguin a try!


Poptropica – Poptropica is another free online game like Animal Jam.  Players can customize their own avatar or “Poptropican” to play with.  Poptropica also has a large online player base but the game is more based around single player activities.  Poptropica players can still interact with eachother but it is only in limited areas and the chat system is restricted.

Most of the focus of Poptropica is on completing the different islands or missions.  There are over 30 different islands in Poptropica, each with a different theme like Wild West or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  Poptropica is aimed at older players than Animal Jam because some of the islands can be fairly complex.  The game has a lot to offer, even for free players.  If you enjoy playing games with missions or objectives to complete, check out Poptropica.


Webkinz – Webkinz is a free online game for kids.  Children can sign up for free online or use a code from a Webkinz stuffed animal to gain access.  Players customize their own stuffed animal as an avatar to play with.  Using this avatar, you can explore the Webkinz World.  Just like in Animal Jam, you can buy items to decorate your stuffed animals.  You can even wash them and do other fun activities!

Webkinz also has mini games to play with your stuffed animal.  In addition to these features, players can interact with others in the clubhouse areas and chat with other players.  Webkinz is mainly designed for younger players but it can be fun for all ages!  If you are looking for another fun online stuffed animal game, try playing Webkinz.


Fantage – Fantage is another open-world type of online game for children.  Kids can sign up for free and customize their own avatar however they like.  Unlike Animal Jam, the characters in Fantage are people.  Fantage is a game that is more focused on socializing with other players rather than completing missions or objectives.  Players can host parties at their houses and even participate in fashion shows.

The game also features games where you can compete against other players and earn gems.  Gems can be used to purchase new items and outfits for your character, similar to Animal Jam.  Since Fantage focuses mainly on the social aspect of gaming, it has a three-tiered safety system in place.  This ensures that players are safe from exposing personal identification and other risks.  Fantage is a great game for socializing with other kids online.  If you like meeting new friends and want to hang out in a virtual town, check out Fantage!


Bin Weevils – Bin Weevils is a fairly new free online game like Animal Jam.  Like the other games mentioned, players create their own character when they first log in to play.  Bin Weevils is also set in an open-world setting where players are free to explore.  Each user has their own nest which they can expand and decorate.  Players also have a garden in their nest where they can plant and harvest plants to earn money and points.

The game features multiple games where players can earn points and currency.  Players can also communicate with others using the in-game chat system.  Bin Weevils is similar to Animal Jam in a lot of ways so if you are looking for a new game to try, give it a shot.

  1. Hello, everyone! My username for Animal Jam is PokemonWizards101, and my spare account’s username is AnimeRulez752. Thanks for taking the time to read this! By the way, my favorite animes are Fruits Basket, One Piece, Pokémon, and Attack on Titan. I love reading/drawing manga and of course, playing the online game Animal Jam. I am also a Warrior Cats roleplayer (Warriors is a chapter book series) and my roleplaying name for Warriors is Shadowheart AKA Shadow. I am a rogue black panther with a pitch-black pelt, crystal light blue eyes, a long black tassel, and a slight scratch across my right ear. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I haven’t exactly roleplayed in a long time… XD Anyway, so thanks for reading my profile and please add me if you’re a fellow roleplayer! Thank you!

    • Hello, I am Jacob’s sister, Mayah (and my username on Animal Jam is KawaiiKool32). I really think that AJHQ should let nonmembers do a lot more things than they normally could right now (hence the chant “LIONS ROAR, EAGLES SOAR, NONMEMBERS DESERVE MORE!”) I’ve been e-mailing AJHQ a lot (no worries, I wasn’t spamming them) to make sure that soon AJHQ allows there to be much more things for nonmembers on A.J. to do. AJHQ, if you’re reading this right now, please do make a change to how things are right now in Animal Jam. Thank you so much for your time, and please follow my advice! (P.S. Remember that chant and persuade people to say it all across Jamaa please!)

    • Dear,AJHQ
      could you give me my items back i got hacked recently got some items back

      The Items were: black green headdress.5 tan tiki,7 black longs,and 2 rim headdress, and 5 black tiki masks.

      I don’t remember who hacked me but I know i got hacked and i forgot three of the items were 6 glitched rings and 10 blue longs and 17 epic plushies and 150 den betas.

      Dont worry bout the 150 den betas AJHQ can you please return those items i hope you will cause i have been devastated about the items i lost, i miss them so much, people in animal jam have been being mean to me because i dont have those items anymore. They are laughing at me cause i don’t have those items 🙁 could you please help me?
      that would be amazing,i would be so happy be doing the happy dance in animal jam!!!

      i love the game so much! your awesome jammer: skyejamer514

      • i did not get any of the items you see bout the black headdresses and tan tikis and black tikis or the black longs or the Epic Pushies or glitched rings or the 10 blue longs neither the 150 den betas

    • Dear AJHQ

      I love what you have done to the game (AJ)
      its really help prevent hacking and scamming but of course in the last 4 reply’s,
      I had got hacked,but it has prevented scamming alot,i love the idea of toucans its going to be a good addition to the game I don’t know if it will be for non members but it would be cool to have a flying animal as a non member!
      it would be a revolution for non members!!!!!!!!!!
      ………………………………………………………………2nd half: AJHQ could you add one of my favorite animals 2 the game?
      it would be awesome to add the humming bird it would be awesome!
      that would be so cool.
      ………………………………………………………………3rd half: I love the game animal jam 🙂 its the best game iv’e ever played on the computer my cousin showed it to me back in 2014 it was awesome having an animal jam account.

  21. What about MM ( Moshi monsters ) and MSP? They’re similar to AJ

  22. i got suspended for a week because i told someone i do not want to play anymore so they reported me like 20 time :p

  23. OMG animaljam is for kids and adults i play it and its AWESOME!!!!! btw im a kid and i am a great seeing of things are awesome! lol


  25. Haven’t had any problems with being hacked yet. Honestly you’re pretty safe if you have a tricky, long password. For instance, mixed letters and numbers. If you can’t remember it, write it down in a locked diary or something. I wouldn’t trust my password with anyone.
    And hopefully that whole Recycledbeards scandal is over. What a nuisance that was… Never got hacked by him/her, either. I actually saw the real one in his/her den, so I decided to be brave and keep them unblocked. Nothing happened, I never got any jamagrams from him/her, except once I did get a jamagram from my buddy saying hi and I freaked out.
    Well anyway. AnimalJam is pretty secure, really. It would probably be difficult for someone to hack away your password without you telling them it. Pretty sure they got rid of that hypocrite Recycledbeards for good. Hopefully. I wouldn’t worry about it.

    Poptropica is pretty fun; I used to play it before I found out about AnimalJam, but it got boring after I completed every single island and bought every item in the store. So I started experimenting some glitches with it and changed my character gender from girl to boy, problem is you can’t change it back once you do.
    Webkinz is fun, too, I guess. Used to play that a lot, too. It’s more targeted for younger kids, probably 11-, but I’m not saying that’s true. It’s not much fun if you don’t have a membership, ’cause now pretty much all the games in the arcade require a membership to even play them.
    Club Penguin is OK, but then again, it’s more fun if you’re a Club Member.
    Never tried Bin Weevils, but I’ll test it out.
    I remember playing Fantage a long time ago, so I don’t really remember much about it. All I remember was it is pretty similar to AJ, where you don’t really have any goals or objectives, whereas Poptropica your incentive is to complete your mission on the various islands and receive some tokens(? forgot what they’re called) in exchange.

    If you wanna add me on Animal Jam, I don’t mind. 😀 My username is shatteredsouls.
    -Keep Jamming :D-
